Deck the Halls

Still working on Christmas cards, another one I have just listed on my ebay page, and I also have this stamp set available for US shipping here on my ebay or here in my Etsy shop :-)

I actually colored this image for last month's daily marker coloring challenge, I just didn't get a chance turn it into a card until now. 
Aren't these cats adorable!!! I colored them with copic markers. Crystal effects was added to the lights to make them shiny. I inked the edges with distress inks and then sewed around the image panel. The designer paper is by BasicGrey and I finished off with some twine from the Twinery. 

Inside I used a Penny Black sentiment set from the set "Season's Gifts". This set is available here in my Etsy shop. 
The cute mouse in the corner is from the set "Holly Jolly".

Another view of the cute image.

Product List:
SU card stock, xpress it blending card
BasicGrey Designer paper,
